MEGAN MCARDLE: How Real Are The Defects In Toyota’s Cars? “Several things are striking. First, the age distribution [of drivers] really is extremely skewed. The overwhelming majority are over 55. . . . At any rate, when you look at these incidents all together, it’s pretty clear why Toyota didn’t investigate this ‘overwhelming evidence’ of a problem: they look a lot like typical cases of driver error. I don’t know that all of them are. But I do know that however advanced Toyota’s electronics are, they’re not yet clever enough to be able to pick on senior citizens.”

Note this Michael Fumento piece, too.
